Calif. highway patrol officers accused stealing and sharing nude photos

Posted: Updated:
CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, Calif. (Fox News) -- Some women in California have been personally violated -- and according to a California highway patrol officer, it's a game police have been playing for years.

Authorities say California Highway Patrol Officer Sean Harrington told them stealing and sharing explicit photos was a "game" cops have been playing for years. This alleged admission came after Harrington was accused of sending nude photos of a DUI suspect from her cellphone to his own phone while the woman was in custody.

Photos allegedly stolen from personal phones could lead to charges against two CHP officers. Court documents Harrington admitted to stealing nude photos from about a half-dozen female arrestees in the last several years: a practice he said stretches from Los Angeles to the Dublin station.

The documents indicate he also admitted to stealing explicit photos from two women in August: photos he texted to two other Dublin CHP officers, all three of whom made crude comments about the images.

"Allegations that have been brought forwarded are disappointing," said Avery Browne of the California Highway Patrol Golden Gate Division. "They are disgusting and they have angered my staff, top management, executive management of the California Highway Patrol."

So far, there are no charges against the three Bay Area officers, but a decision should be made next week.
